Additionally, by getting your child’s school physical completed as soon as possible you have one less issue to worry about once the busy school year begins. During a sports physical exam, Dr. Kirby will conduct a hernia check, the range of motion testing, and overall physical examination. The test will also include a urinalysis, vision screen, and blood pressure test.
